Childish Gambino Going On Tour With Rae Sremmurd.
Fresh off the premiere of Season 2 of Atlanta, Donald Glover’s musical alter ego Childish Gambino has revealed that he’ll be hitting the road with rap duo Rae Sremmurd for a North American tour.
The tour will serve as the first time Gambino has toured in support of his last studio album, the Grammy-nominated Awaken, My Love!.
Rae Sremmurd will have plenty of new music to showcase, with three LPs worth of new music coming via a group project and two solo offerings from Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi.
Glover’s upcoming tour might also be the last time he tours as Childish Gambino. At the top of this year, he re-confirmed his plans to retire his rap moniker.
“I’m still making another project right now. But I like endings. I think they’re important to progress,” he said during a Q&A ceremony at January’s Grammy Awards.
Childish Gambino’s North American tour will kick off in the rapper/actor’s hometown of Atlanta on September 6, before stopping in about a dozen cities in the United States and Canada.
